Let’s look at the tenants portal and describe what each marked area does.
A. Brings you to the home screen, this is the first thing tenants will see. The home screen shows the latest ‘posts’ from all areas – ‘Latest News, Upcoming Events, Downloads’.
B. These three items filter the posts to show only either The Latest News, Upcoming Events and Downloads. You can ‘send’ posts to these sections by creating posts within the wordpress dashboard. see (adding ‘assigning tenants portal posts to different areas’).
C. This is a communication portal for tenants to send mail to specific departments as outlined in your brief.
D. This Latest news section is consistent over all tenant portal pages and always shows the latest posts regardless of their type.
E. This is a subscription system which allows tenants to subscribe their email address for notifications of new posts (as and when you post them) in the tenants portal. It uses a double opt in system to verify the email address is correct. Once tenants are subscribed you are able to send mail shots out to all subscribed tenants as well. This is managed in the new ‘Email Subscribers‘ section in the WordPress dashboard.
